More New York on Film

Register for this Summer 2023 course on the new NYU SPS Academy of Lifelong Learning website.
We will  look at a selection of films from the silent era to the present day  featuring the city in a significant way. In a couple of instances, films  will be adaptations of novels, which we will read along with the films.  The final list of films will be finalized closer to the date of the  class, as we see what will be available on easy-to-use streaming  platforms. You watch the films on your own, and then we meet online for a  lively and informative discussion. We will explore a mix of serious and  popular films—which may include The Crowd , The Heiress , Breakfast at Tiffany’s , The Warriors, Do the Right Thing , and You’ve Got Mail.  Summer 2023 tuition is $599.
